nice man, congrats!
Guys heads up, got to nicely wake up to see my account go into the red. Pay close attention to how much you spent and how much is in your account. The hotel is adding charges and fees.
0 · February 27, 2013
I'll copy and paste this so I don't have to type it again: I'm one of the package holders. Here's an update on my hotel room. Sunday night I was told I would be charged for the room since the master account was thrown out. Monday morning I check out, I am told the bill was taken care of and was refused a receipt. Today, Wednesday, I notice the hotel bill is back on my account along with the $100 deposit.
Gay, good thing the only thing I really spent on the hotel was the food.
Also, let's hear it for the winner of the fanfic contest: Ryan Homme! Spread the word guys ;) Hey Ryan, how about a link to your fic since they never actually posted it anywhere at the disaster... erm con?

He won the contest that never happened?

Hey guys this is Knuckleshy as you can tell from my icon and as you may have seen up on EQD this morning I am going to be checking in on you guys. Any word on the cost of everyone's charges for the hotel bills and possible dent we have made so far as far as the musicians who preformed out there and how much there is left so for the latter I kinda need to hear from TAPS if possible.
M.A. Larson raised $2750. Also, check out http://bronies.com/lpu/

I also made a post in the discussions tab for the Relief League, for those that don't get updates in this meetup thread.
Also, check out the videos I've made from Unicon. First is Hank proposing to Andrew Francis:
Second is me taking care of a Fedora:

M.A. Larson is raising money for regular people who got shafted for hotel bills that they already paid for. If you are one of these people and are facing financial troubles because of this, get a hold of M.A. Larson, or anyone that you think can get his attention.

If I had any money left, I would donate as much as I can. I was lucky with getting back home... some were not as lucky.

Deep respect for this man, helping out average fellow beings, men, women, and/or bronies who got screwed by this con. This man can have all my kudos, Internets, and whatever valued mental currency can be shared.
The con in itself was great. The organizers - not so much.
2 · February 26, 2013
I was so glad to have had the opportunity to attend my first MLP:FiM Convention! Even when it came to the whole system of rooming with Bronies I've either never or barely met before, it was such a nice and well-kept experience. Going to the convention really gave me so much more to appreciate about the people who work on the show (VA's and Staff), along with being a supportive fan. I'd never imagine I'd be given the opportunity to meet a big chunk of the cast, let alone mingle with them casually.
Now regardless of the good things, I will admit there were some downfalls. The first to start off was the whole fire alarm incident, which ended up ending one of the VA panels early (I actually found it hilarious more than suck-ish). Then there was the Private Dinner where it was unorganized (no assigned seating as stated on the site). Then there was the reorganization on Sunday which threw quite a handful of things off (minus autographs).
Other than that, I still say BEST CON EVER!
and the whole thing getting shut down early and all the bronies double charged for their rooms and none of the talents "Covered" rooms being paid for. lol
I have been staying in close contact with my bank, and with all said and done I am only being charged the original amount promised for my room with the basic room deal that the convention offered.I obviously have no idea if this happened for everyone with single-person rooms, but things somehow either didn't reach this far down the totem pole or it was only the fully comped rooms and the super-big advertized limited # room deals, not the small basic room deals.
Well... that was quite an experience.
1 · February 25, 2013
With no con to compare it to, i cant say it was bad or good. I did have a good time with meeting several of you guys, and of course more bronies from other areas. Looking forward to more meets in the future, and definitely for EQLA. Hoping to put together a NLR soldier cosplay before then.

It was the worst event I have ever been to. The community was it's only saving grace. All those poor people who are out hundreds and the ones who are our thousands from it make it the worst event ever.
Our very own Hank Lugan purposing to Andrew Francis (Shining Armor) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1D1kkM52fK8
Through the chaos I had fun. Friday and Saturday were awesome. Sunday, not so much.
OH. MY. GOD. Was that, or was that not, THE Best Con EVAR?! It was so much fun and I met so many cool people and to top it all off it was organized and everything ran so smoothly! I especially enjoyed how absolutely none of the panels where interupted by alarms or anything like them! Also the lack of alcohol abuse was definitely a breath of fresh air, as opposed to the rest of the strip! Booze? Yucky! I can't WAIT to go again next year! <3
I like the part about the extra security everywhere and the abundance of staff.
Beside the fact that Sunday was a total bomb, I actually had a fun time with meeting bronies I knew & new bronies, meeting VAs I haven't seen up until this weekend, and swagging it up at the vendor hall.
It's a shame how things went, but at the end of it all, I believe the good outweighed the bad for this weekend.
I had a good time but getting ripped off 270 for yhe hotel is beyond annoying....
I really didn't know what happend on Sunday. I was on the Vegas Strip and went to the Air Force before coming back and everything was shut down early I guess around 5 ish?
It was all shut down at 3pm when the hotel found out the con couldn't afford the bill.
I can't help myself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epfq5DqyQec
I am interested as to what problems were at the con.What happend?
I'm wondering the same
From word of mouth: they ran out of money and were significantly in debt by the second day. They couldn't afford to pay the travel or appearance fees of the show guests, musicians, and agents they invited out, nor could they afford to pay the hotel however much they it cost for the venue space. As a result, the hotel closed down the convention early, some of the talent jumped ship early, some people got kicked out of their hotel rooms early, and they needed to start a donation drive to get everyone home.
Yeah. It was pretty chaotic.
Weekend pass did not go to full use then. ouch
I'm just praying my credit card company can get my money back.
Worst con I have ever been to in my life. There are only two reasons I didn't give it 0 stars and that's the fact the VAs' and the community was great.

A few bronies I'm with may be interested, but I don't have your number :/
Where at? Im at The hotels convention center
Did I talk to you guys?
Where are you at? Im at the Hotel wandering around.
Gonna be there by 9.
Bunch of us here, its 6:45, were going to dinner at Korean BBQ. Call us if you want to meet us. [masked]
Have fun ponies
Hey im getting a ride up there but ill be late, arriving around 8:30. If i were to bunk in with you guys, how much would i have to pay to stay in your room?
Umm, sudden problem, guys. It's likely my friend won't be going to Vegas and can't give me a ride to the con. Any open carpool spots? D:

Yucaipa, CA :I
1 · February 19, 2013
and thanks. '^^)
Oh damn... Short notice on that one :S
Fully planned on 8 people going to be staying in hotels and all of that. You sure you can't get your friend to take you?
0 · February 20, 2013
He said he expected sales commission from work, but things haven't closed in time for this weekend. Said he'd just be a pain if he was able to take me, since he
'd have to keep the trip very short.
I can prob help you out. I am leaving Friday morning that cool with you?
Also have space in our room for 1 more.
I think we'll be able to pull it off after all. Sorry for the alarm. Thanks so much guys anyways. I believe I'm still with Chris for room and board too.
Yes you are. I'll text you the info when I check in on Thursday.
1 · February 20, 2013
Okay, the number I usually give people is a soft-phone for work. Use (909)[masked] instead.
Alright everyone listen up.
This is what I got going on. I got a villa on the strip and getting confirmation tonight and latest tomorrow. The rate I will charge everyone is $20 and the villa can hold up to 8 people. I have myself, Peter, Daniel, Hank, And Eric that were wanting a room. If anyone else wants in let me know. The villa is at The Polo Tower so it's about a 15 min walk or a 2 min drive there.
For carpool this is what I know from all various sources XDDaniel ad I are working out were we will be taking a van, or if not ill be taking my truck there. Peter should go with Ryan because if I'm having to drive I have to drive a bit away to pick up Daniel.
I'll confirm this with Ryan, and if we take the van we can take an additional 3 people.
1 · January 25, 2013
yay a plan! ^>^
0 · January 25, 2013
also if it too hard to pick me up i can get dropped off along your route to be pick up :P
Can you bring me and my roommate on board for.. well, board? xD Drive is fine. But room x-x)
Cool! I tossed myself up on the carpool sheet, so then Christian, Peter, Hank and whoever else can go ahead and put their names in. Also, that sounds awesome for a room! If we need more beds, I can grab some inflatable mattresses.
Need to really get ahold of Hank. At the monet I won't add my villa to room sheet because I'm still working out details. Tomorrow is the latest. Peter will get a ride so that is good. Tomorrow everything will be worked out I think :3
Almost positive I'll need a room. Pretty sure I can drive myself/offer rides if need be.
Alright, if Hank confirms officially, I have my Villa filled.
People that will be staying with me.
Peter, Daniel, Hank, Eric, Kage, Kage's unfortunate non-brony, and Anfernee.
Just got confirmation, so private villa is a go :D
Cool just $20 /night correct?
No, $20 for the whole stay. If you want to pay me more that's alright too :3
we should hit the buffets!
I will pay you all the money.
0 · January 26, 2013
Keep in mind the convention center and the polo tower villas are over 2 miles away. This quite a walk to be doing after being at the convention for awhile or a taxi ride. Also, having to go back to your room to drop of merchandise or other items will be quite an ordeal. My reasoning to always get a room at the convention center is to be able to hang out with other attendees 24/7. So keep this in mind if you want to keep the villa or not.
0 · January 27, 2013
As far as carpool either one works. I'm thinking about staying Sunday night but I still have to get a hold of hank.
New update, the we are going to actually be staying at the Riviera. Got two rooms. Prices will still remain the same.
i once had to walk that distance along the strip one time becuse i got seperated from my sister so we had to walk back to circus cirous parking structure... ah memories
i got to see the sexy dancers tho :L
Cool beans! Yeah... I stayed about a mile or so away for EQLA, and after the first walk there and back, I ended up just driving and paying for parking anyways (the mind was willing, but the flesh was soft and bruised...)
The polo tower is next door to the hilton grand vacation club, right? Thats where i will be staying
Yeah, but this all situation is moving to the Riviera it seems...
0 · January 28, 2013
Yes, I actually called in a favor to either get me a room at location or someplace close. Though I at first got an ok, my friend discovered that he need to be present, so opted to get me the rooms at Riveria.
Makes things easy anyways, so I didn't complain.
How will the drive over be going?
0 · January 31, 2013
Montebello is a bit far for me, but if you can make it out to the inland empire, there is still plenty room in my minivan!
I don't actually live in Montebello that's just a weird thing that happened when I joined the Meetup group. But I'm in Irvine, so I'll probably have to drive out to you anyways.
if that's the case, you can always leave your car in my garage if you wanted to
0 · February 1, 2013
This plan is still a thing right? If it is I'm going to say I won't be taking my spot in the room until Friday.
0 · February 11, 2013
Yeah, the only difference is that it will be at the Riveria Hotel (Con Site).
0 · February 12, 2013
I knew that. Also, this means I won't be needing a ride.
Hey, since I won't be arriving on the day everyone else is, I'll probably need a phone number or something so I can get in contact with someone when I do arrive. So I'll know what room to go to and all that.
All of our phone numbers are on the carpool and roomshare sheet.
Totally forgot those existed, sorry.
Everyone keep an idea on weather conditions for the pass. I heard the pass is really bad right now as well as snow from Hisperia to Stateline.
It's also going to be a bit chilly in Vegas. The highs won't hit 60 so be sure to bring some warm wear.
Anyone who is carpooling and had a smartphone good idea to designate a "traffic and weather dude" who checks his phone periodically for traffic and weather
Hm... the can is all wheel drive, but I'll probably still bring chains just in case
we should be fine
Considering leaving before the roosters crow on Friday morning, to get there for early badge/swag pickup and opening ceremonies. Good idea/ bad idea?
good idea, better idea: leave thursday.
2 · February 19, 2013
I wish there was a way to turn off notifications on mobile. I'm sad everytime I see anything Unicon :<
Alright, for cereal... who wants to leave right now?
idk but theres a strom coming o.o
I blame the pegasi. Rainbow Dash is slacking and needs to clear it Asap!
Another (IE) Carpool update. I sent an email to Daniel to see if this would work. I would leave, picking up Hank and Ryan from Riverside on my way to Daniel's. Ill leave my car there then me, other Ryan, Hank, Peter, and Christian all go in Daniel's van. I believe everyone I listed said they're fine going Thursday to Monday.
0 · February 14, 2013
Sounds good! Also, I have no problem picking people from riverside. My schedule is flexible, so we can do leave and return whenever is best for you guys. If you could message or email me with your info we can start coordinating this thing :)
1 · February 14, 2013
Riverside is on my way to your house so Ill pick them up. What time Thursday are we looking at?
0 · February 15, 2013
I'm thinking between 12 and 1 sine the preregistration does not even open until 4. Although, if anyone has work, or wants to leave earlier, that is fine too
I'd would like to be on the road by 11. Must maximize Vegas time.
0 · February 16, 2013
Well, I just need to know when because I know I'll be so excited, I probably will be awake early that day.
OK, 11it is then!
Sounds good. Gotta see if Ryan and Peter know whats up.
0 · February 17, 2013
I sent an email to Ryan. I think Peter checks this often enough.
I'll have my father drop me off at Daniels's house on Thursday, I just need his address.
I just added my address to the carpool sheet. I live right next to the East campus urgent care if anyone knows where that is.
Alright! So the plan is for Ryan to bring Hank and other Ryan from Riverside, and leave his car at my place. Peter will be dropped off here by his dad, and then at 11 we all head out and pick up Christian on the way. Sound good? Make sure to bring some music and DVDs :)

Trying. Lot of work figuring out who everyone is riding with.
Hey guys! I am totally going to this and also driving from riverside! If anyone is interested, give me a reply. I am going to try and get a room somewhere maybe. But for now I have no place to stay so if someone has a spot for me to sleep somewhere that would be cool! If not, I will probably get my own and then let people get in on that.
0 · February 6, 2013
I know both me and Christian will be leaving Thursday coming back Monday. Also, Christian has two rooms at the con site where people can pay him. If these days are good you could probably drive with me, Hank, and Eric.
0 · February 10, 2013
Alright sweet, I got a room for myself so no need to worry about that. Turns out a friend of mine may or may not be coming, so if he does Ill go with him but if not I may take you up on your offer.
Peter is able to ride with me or Christian, do if your friend goes we can open another seat. Well get details handled soon.
Have room for two more? Ideally near Anaheim. Anypony?
I still have a few seats. Anaheim is a little far, but if anyone wants, they could drive out to the inland empire and leave their car in my garage :)
Welp my friend can't go so If I can get a ride that would be awesome
0 · February 13, 2013
Sure man, I still have plenty of room! If you want, just go ahead and put your name down on the carpool sheet
I'll be stopping in Riverside to pick up Hank. I can pick you up no problem Ryan. Then Peter will go with you Daniel.
